traditional and hand made golu

my padi is custom made.the steps start at 3 feet and go upto 7 feet in height.i have setup all god and goddesses dolls in the traditional way.the space below houses Lord Venkateswara and his consort Alamelu manga.Lakshmi and Saraswathy give them company.the marapachi shown here are handme downs from two generations.The third photo shows a heirloom Marapacchi pair,three generations old.the next photo shows mu miniature garden with individual pots arranged on a specially made stand.the pots are only an inch high.on the other side are miniature quilled plants in my own recycled magazine stands.the last photo shows 4inch tall talls that i made to depict the birth of Lord Murugan.
